Development Consulting

Not all philanthropy is about campaigns. Building your capacity to better manage development efforts makes for a stronger organization. CapDev uses our decades of expertise as well as current resources to customize plans that help build sustainable fund development programs.

Development Assessment

An in-depth discovery of an organization's governance, finance, fundraising programs, technology and community relations, the Assessment uncovers challenges, determines how to leverage maximum development potential, and offers solutions through the recommendations of an in-depth Development Plan.

Development Plan

The result of findings in a Development Assessment, the Development Plan provides formal recommendations as a roadmap to guide successful development initiatives. Action items are assigned responsibility and timelines to drive and ensure accountability.

Case for Support

CapDev's professional writers help nonprofits articulate their vision by creating a "Statement of Need." The Case is built upon this document to share the organization's story and most importantly, why give.

Planned Giving

As the anticipated wealth transference is underway, the need to cultivate donors regarding estate planning is greater than ever. Planned gifts benefit both the donor and the cause, and CapDev's team of experts helps organizations build planned giving programs and incorporate into campaigns.

Board Development

All nonprofits have boards, and all boards need educational and training opportunities to motivate and engage. CapDev's professional staff delivers customized seminars and workshops of all types.  Click here to learn more about our conferences and workshops.

Strategic Planning

A well-devised long-range plan brings an organization's vision to life, and is a mandatory first step for major fund development efforts. CapDev's experts help organizations strategize three to five-year plans, engaging leadership, and boosting overall operations.

"My thanks to CapDev for our assessment document and the process which created it. Its contents identify valuable strengths and weaknesses that could only come from someone close to our organization. The recommendations that spring from this work will be extraordinarily helpful as we move to a new level of competency with the Foundation."
